The Carbon Bar
Where fun-loving aficionado’s, gourmands and bon vivants meet to share un-pretentious snacks, plates and platters delivered with impeccable hospitality in a space inspired by the storied past of a rock’n’roll discotheque, an upstart TV station and a media giant’s studio.
What a fantastic meal. Everything was outstanding. Highly recommend. Service was friendly and attentive, food was decadent. Made for a perfect date night experience.
Great food, nice atmosphere but felt rushed as food came out WAY too quickly for most people's liking! Great if you're in a rush though.
Love this place. Great drinks menu and food to match. As long as you don't mind paying slightly more for BBQ this is the place to go.
Great experience for a special birthday dinner. Great food, and we had a lovely young Irish server.
It was a little too noisy but I expect that in Toronto restaurants.
We will come back soon.
Love the atmosphere and service just wish the food options were healthier and/or more to choose from.
A great spot. First date, dinner, even romantic evening. The food was great and place is cozy , yet has a funky design. Try to sit at the bar or the mezzanine.
I've been coming here for the last few years, the food and service isn't the same.
Great experience, great food, great service.
Well done Carbon Bar !
We had the chef’ choice multiple course meal. All courses were excellent. The bartender maybe us some sample mamba margaritas complete with a flaming heart. Overall a very good dinner. We were in town for a convention and ate here twice.
Food was good, a bit overpriced but nonetheless it was delicious. We had the alligator Nuggets to start, probably not my favorite. A bit too over battered, it doesn't allow you to REALLY taste the meat. Then we had the squash salad and Cesar, both very delicious and full of flavor. After we shared the BBQ platter. The meat was very good, super tender and the BBQ sauces were delicious. I personally think they are expensive for what you get but you pay for the ambiance too. We finished off with the death by chocolate cake, which was delicious! Would I go again? Sure... But it wouldn't be a place I would necessarily brag about.
Love the room and the cocktails
Great atmosphere and great food. Very cool bar and great place to bring a date.
Food and drinks were amazing as usual and the server was friendly and on point.
Food was delicious. Great cocktails. Excellent service. Very cool building & decor.
Always a treat
Carbon bar had a really cool vibe - high ceilings, brick walls, and awesome light fixtures. The cocktail menu had cool twists on known drinks. We did the Carbon Experience (aka Chef's Tasting) and they were accommodating to my lactose intolerance. We had a delicious and very filling meal for a great price.
Delicious food, great service, beautiful decor and ambience. Great place for a date night. Wish the meat portions were larger for the BBQ meat, but no complaints otherwise!
Service was impeccable and food was awesome
I order the pit master platter and while I love the chicken, the ribs this time were the best yet. Great flavour throughout the meat. Always one of my favourite meals.
Good service, great atmosphere
Beautifully setup. Great vibe. Definitely going back. Not too loud considering all the high ceilings and hard surfaces. A lot of thought was put into the layout, alcohol selection, menu and food prep.
Loved Ivan and the bourbon cart. That alone is worth the visit.
The food was good. We had the bbq platter for 2. The sauces were very good especially the coffee bbq sauce paired with the brisket.
Quantity was very good; we took plenty home and had no room for dessert. Really liked the crispy chicken. Would have liked a bit more depth of flavour on the ribs and brisket. 2 years ago I would have said the bbq is best in a Toronto but Toronto food keeps getting better and I am getting spoiled.
Yes I had my veggies. The deep fried cauliflower was very good.
I was also intrigued that there is a lot of seafood choice. Nextime I may try the paella.
I liked the space.. it's really cool but the food was just ok. We had ceviche...not that great. Chicken and biscuits...just ok and the Brisket was good.
Amazing place ! Totally recommend this restaurant. The food is incredible and perfectly cooked. Thanks for everything!
The experience was amazing, the portion sizes was just the right amount and I loved the fact that everything came one after another instead of all together like most restaurants
Food made me extremely sick after. It was price fixe for Valentine’s Day.
Nice place to have a date night or not so pretentious dinner in the east end. The food was great but a little too much for someone who isn’t a total meat lover. Service was on on point and attention to detail was greatly appreciated. Overall excellent place for the service, location, and “hip” dining experience.
I’ve been going to carbon bar for a while , it’s always been on the top of my list . I was extremely impressed on Valentine’s Day how they handled making our evening romantic and intimate well maintaining the charm that is carbon bar . Special s/o to the Managment for accommodating a fried chicken lover 👌🥂
The Atmosphere, service and BBQ was good. But everything was very overpriced. I don't have an problem paying more for a fantastic meal but you can get this quality of BBQ for much cheaper and the quality is adjusted as good. The only food we had an issue with was the clams casino which was inedible. The clams were rubber and couldn't be eaten. Over it was okay but I wouldn't recommend with all the other fantastic restaurants in the city.
This was our second Valentines Day at Carbon Bar as we enjoyed it so much last year. This year didn’t disappoint. All of the courses were great. We loved the KFC (Korean Fried Cauliflower) and the blistered peppers.
The main was very filling and we couldn’t finish it but they were happy to give us a takeout container.
Loved the ribs ... wish I could do ribs as well.
Great place if you love meat.
Serving staff ate a good portion of my son's birthday cake
What a fabulous restaurant. The staff were great, especially Lisa and the bourbon Santa!
Excellent food. Great service and ambiance. Can't wait to go again 10/10.
The food wasn't great for a vegetarian. The drinks and ambience were nice. A little overpriced but in general a hip place.
everything was great. service is great!
I love this place, tried the cod this time for a change and it was good.
My husband and I went as part of our kid-Free getaway and it was amaizng. The food, the atmosphere, the service, all of it. We did the Carbon Bar Experience and we did not regret it. We loved every single dish we were served. My husband also asked the bartender to surprise him with a cocktail and she did just that, taking the time to come talk to him and learn his tastes before making him a unique cocktail that he loved. We would definitely recommend this to anyone.
The BBQ smell bit me once we got through the door. The food was excellent, the portions huge.
Can’t wait to get back there
Service was horrible. Took 30 min to get a drink and another 15 to take our food order. They weren’t sure who was our waiter and the manager that night was no help. The food was very fatty and greasy. We have been many times. Not sure with this service I would ever go back. Audrey
Cocktails were great. Meat was excellent although it was expensive
Great food. Great service. Nice design aesthetic. Food was great tho I didn't love the jalepino corn bread or its whiskey butter personal taste on that aside ... I will be back!
